I’ve always loved to ride my bike. I grew up in a small town and was pretty much free to roam. My bike gave me independence.
My husband and I bought bikes when we moved to our current house nearly twenty years ago. Last year I passed that bike on to my daughter and bought myself a new “old lady” bike. It’s a Townie. It allows me to sit up straight when I’m riding and greatly alleviates the neck pain that resulted from leaning forward and looking up when I rode my old bike.
The weather was perfect. The sun was shining. I was free and independent again. My “old lady” bike made me feel like a kid!
